My 1st Finish of the Year & a new blog!!

So, I'm finally ready to start my NEW blog. Yipee!!!! After reading all of the blogs of my fellow PALS, I really wanted to start my own.....again.

Cue trupmet fanfare...

Without further ado, here is my first finish of the year......

GhostStitcher Wedding Sampler
Finished 11/13/2010

I was really excited to get this piece in the mail. It was my first GhostStitcher project and I wanted to make sure it looked perfect (as far as cross stitch goes).

When the company called me and told me it was mostly backstitch, I thought it would be a piece of cake.

Um.....no. Here was my nemesis...

These two little corner frames were a pain in my butt. There were so many colors and so many quarter stitch only parts that I spent more time changing colors than actual stitching. I'm really hoping that the people that this goes to really love it and I hope to be getting a new piece in the mail soon.



  1. Welcome back to blog land.
    Congratluations on your first ghost stitcher project! It's beautiful but I see how it could drive you crazy.

  2. Thanks Nan! It really did. One day in Myrtle Beach I only finished like one inch of it! I was so frustrated. Now I need to find something in my stash that is very mindnumbing.

  3. Love, love, love this - great job!
